Parents are their child’s first and most important teachers.
Parents are an integral part of their child’s education and there are many ways in which parents can involve themselves in their child’s school life. Parents can actively participate through assisting in the classroom, attending school Masses and learning events, volunteer to assist with reading during RATS, attend school working bee’s, join the Parents and Friends Association or the School board, attend sports days and excursions or simply enjoy the social functions offered throughout the year. Children thrive when they know their parents have an interest in their life at school.
St Mary’s Primary school adheres to all Child Safe standards and laws, and encourages all parents to get a Working With Children’s Check which is free if volunteering in the school. Here is the link to begin the process
Parent & Friends Association (P&F)
The P&F is an essential part of school for both social events and financial support that it provides. The P&F provides opportunities for all of us to socialise in the community, come together and work collectively for a common goal. The funds raised by the P&F are always spent improving educational opportunities for our Learners. We welcome anyone into our P&F and are proud of our strong sense of community.
